Elvis Presley, known the world over by just his first name, is regarded as one of the most important figures in 20th century music and popular culture. He permanently altered the landscape of American music with a sound and style that uniquely combined diverse and seemingly disparate musical influences. In the process, he ushered in a music revolution that triggered a global-scale cultural transformation.
Elvis was passionate about an extensive and varied array of music. His influences included the pop ballads and country music of his day, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on Memphis' historic Beale Street as a teenager. His aspiration was to take the music that affected him and make it his own. Nobody could have predicted how successfully Elvis would achieve his ambition, or the impact he would have on music and society. He meshed a diversity of musical influences, creating a sound and style that had never been heard or seen. In the process, he became the first genuine Rock & Roll icon, providing a new generation with a unique sound to call its own.
One of three albums cut from Elvis' Stax Studios sessions recorded directly after his separation from Priscilla, 1973's diverse Raised On Rock/For Ol' Times Sake ranges from classic groovers like "Raised On Rock," "If You Don't Come Back" and "Just A Little Bit," to songs of regret like "For 'Ol Times Sake" to songs of heartache like "Sweet Angeline" and "I Miss You," and The King nails them all!
